Michelle Obama Admits: “Fortunately, We Have Help From The Media”


obama-michelleIn an interview with CNN, First Lady Michelle Obama thanks the media for their “support” and “kindness.”

CNN reporter: “How’s the family ready for this [the election]? It’s going to be quite vicious, isn’t it? How do you prepare for that?”

First Lady Michelle Obama: “You know, it’s … we’re ready, you know. Our children, you know, could care less about what we’re doing. We work hard to do that. Fortunately, we have help from the media. I have to say this: I’m very grateful for the support and kindness that we’ve gotten. People have respected their privacy and in that way, I think, you know, no matter what people may feel about my husband’s policies or what have you, they care about children and that’s been good to see.”

  1. Although no fan of either Obama, she was clearly saying that the media helps in keeping her children out of the political debate. Much ado about nothing on this one.

  2. Any half objective (or less) reader of her comments as published here will see that they have nothing to do with the media’s support of Obama policy. She was refering to their not hounding her children. She would never admit to a media bias.

  3. This is a worthless story trying to smear the Oval Office. Of course the media can help the president and his family. You didn’t want to live in a nation where the media is so destructive of those in office did you? That said the media these days is organized and efficient. We do not lay low in a time of trouble that can be changed by the attention of the media. And of course you have fringe medias like the Fox news station which reports some things efficiently and on other topics is biased and even creates false stories. So go media, keep us informed!

  4. the first three comments are true , however if the media didnt like obama they wouldnt give them even that much respect . so from the fact that shes admiting that the media respects them clearly shows their bias to the obamas because bush’s family didnt get that . in any case any one who doesnt see how the media is the mouthpeice and defender of obama needs his head examined , we dont need the first isha to tell us that . without the media obama would have gotten about 4% of the vote , my mailman would do a better job than him as president !
